I am trying to open the "OOB" AssetPortalBrowser.aspx from a page within a SharePoint native modal popup.

My aim is to get the selected filename back to the script. So far I was able to open the popup with the AssetPortalBrowser.aspx, but I don't know how to "close" the popup while clicking the built-in "OK" button on the AssetPortalBrowser.aspx.

When I click OK the AssetPortalBrowser.aspx page within the modal popup does not completely close. Instead the popup changes to a box with the following text:

"Please wait while your changes are processed."

and a title


More specifically, I don't know where to write the code to close the form and return to the "dialogReturnValueCallback" function (just like it happens when the "Cancel" button gets clicked").

Please find below my code:

function InitiateAssetPickerPopUp(){

var context = new SP.ClientContext.get_current();
this.Web = context.get_web();
context.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this, this.onSuccess),
    Function.createDelegate(this, this.onFail));

function onSuccess(sender, args){

var options = {
            title: 'My Dialog',
            width: 500,
            showClose: false,
            url: _spPageContextInfo.siteServerRelativeUrl+'/_layouts/AssetPortalBrowser.aspx?&AssetUrl='+_spPageContextInfo.siteServerRelativeUrl+'&RootFolder='+_spPageContextInfo.siteServerRelativeUrl+'&MDWeb='+this.Web.get_id()+'&AssetType=Link',

function onFail(sender, args) {
alert('Failed:' + args.get_message());

That action will need to be adjusted on asset portal browser page itself. The OK button commits differently than the cancel button does. What I would do personally is set up a JScript function on load in that page to look for a URL param. If that param equals..let's say 1 ... Look for the OK button on that page and change the on click function to the same as the cancel..if this applies... That way you are not changing the ootb functionality of the page. And still get the result you want. So your callback listener will see the dialogue result instead of an incomplete process
